    My wife and I barely have the opportunity to go out on a "date night" and Pacci was the perfect choice. Pacci did not disappoint. I loved the antipasti choices and my duck with blueberry sauce was devine. The atmosphere was jumping and it felt like we were dining in New York City. It was a perfect night from beginning to end, and we cannot wait to go back.

    We stayed at the hotel and had both breakfast a dinner here. Lots of locavore fare. Pastas and locally made cheeses were excellent. You can't miss their mozzarella. As good as we have had anywhere. Breakfast hash especially good. Service spotty. They get very busy with small conferences.

    We found Pacci on Opentable and both of us wanted to do pasta. Pacci is a fun place that used to be the first Coca-Cola bottling plant outside of Atlanta. Our waiter, Wesley, was very friendly and attentive. The food tasted very good. However, both of us felt that the portion size was smaller than the portions that we have had at other comparable Italian restaurants. Still, it will not stop me from going back when I am in Savannah.

    For our 14th anniversary, we selected your restaurant from the vast online menu and the gorgeous gallery of photos. We were a bit dissapointed with the smaller menu offered at the restaurant. We ordered the Hunter Cattle Beef Ravioli. The meat inside was ddelicious, but the ravioli was thick, chewy with hard outer edges. The tiramisu was bland - nothing stood out - not the expresso, not the cocoa, not the mascapone. It was like a bostom cream pie. My husband ordered the chocolate cake - icing was fair, but the cake dry. It's a shame that I cannot recommend your gorgeous restaurant.

    The food was very imaginative and nicely presented. The portions slightly small. Our table was right in front of the bar and a group of 8 men arrived and ordered drinks. They stood drinking practically on top of my seat. This would be my only criticism ---they really should have been directed elsewhere since there were no available seats at the bar.

    We first ate at Pacci during their opening week. The service was good for a just opened restaurant and the food was great! It was noisy but energetic. This recent meal was not so good. The quality of the bread had gone down, our slices were from a loaf that was burnt on top and the crumb was unpleasantly coarse and dense. The grouper tasted good but came out lukewarm and the shrimp and asparagus tasted as if they had forgotten to flavor the breading. It was just oil and flour and bland. I was disappointed that the promise of that initial rollout was so unfulfilled.

    However we were not happy with our table after first checking in prior to our reservation time, and as we watched all of the tables being filled, we were given an awkward table practically in the hotel lobby. Ultimately we ate at the bar and the manager was very accommodating. Two suggestions tone down the lighting, and secondly the pretty high school girls at check in need to be able to do more than walk you to any table.

    All the food was terrific but the chef destroyed the mussels (Cozze) with curry. Curry has nothing to do with Italian food, it is overpowering and totally wrecks the mussel dish.

    I had pretty high expectations based on visits to Leoci's Trattoria, from by the same chef. Everything at Pacci fell a bit short. The mussels weren't hot and had many empty shells, the broth might have been good, but there was only one tiny piece of burnt toast for sopping and slurping. The flatbread tasted flat and unexciting. The $9 spoonful of risotto was lackluster. The truffle fries didn't taste at all of truffles. The large tables in the back are too large, a little too deep, I felt so far away from the person across from me. The decor is fun and contemporary, but not enough to bring me back. I think I'll wait to return until I hear some glowing reviews about Pacci, and I won't make the mistake of bringing out of town guests.

    They were understaffed and my dinner was awful. They rushed around and we had to flag the server down several times. Bread plates on the table, but we had to ask for bread. No olive oil or butter. We had to flag someone down and ask for olive oil, as did the table next to us. No one ever checked to see if we needed anything. I ordered the Pesto Gnoicci. It was awful. I had it once before and it was amazing. This time, it was bland, tasteless and mushy. The noise level is high enough without Florence and the Machine blaring in the background. Later, they did turn the music down a little. I have no plans to return or recommend this restaurant.

    I had high hopes for our night in Savannah with reservations at Pacci. It is a beautiful restaurant in a beautiful, hip hotel. I really wanted to like it and I tried very hard to like it. Cheese plate was good with the exception of the bread. Tuscan white bean soup would have been good had it not been too salty to eat. We later overheard the guy beside us send his back as well. My husband had a seared fish over pasta with white wine sauce... pretty nondescript, bland and flavorless. I had garden flatbread with tomatoes, asparagus and fresh ricotta. Was cold by the time it arrived (about 35 minutes after we ordered and the place was empty) and was pretty bland. Sadly, it was a big disappointment.

    Food and service were excellent. Fresh seafood, excellent pasta, best Negroni I have ever had. Problem was that the noise was so overwhelming that we literally could not hear one another talk. The bar is a vibrant place in the evening, as it should be considering the excellent drinks the mixologists prepare; but that vibrancy means that tables anywhere near it are surrounded by a lot of noise. We ate an excellent Italian-accented breakfast at Pacci, with service that was a bit too intimate. I would happily return to Pacci if I could have a table away from the noise. If the weather allows, outside dining might be a reasonable alternative.

    I ordered the Gnocchi in pesto sauce and turns out that the Gnocchi looked like tater tots that had no taste and the non existent pesto sauce was very weak. My advice travel the extra 80 miles north on Rt 17 and eat at Fulton Five. There are plenty of good restaurants in Savannah but Pacci isn't one of them.

    Overall I was very satisfied. The drinks were a little pricey but they were also some of the best I have had in Savannah. The basil honey sour was amazing. The cheese plate was very good as well as the duck I had for entree. I would like to go back with a large group to be able to get appetizers, charcuterie and more cheese to split. The food was a little pricey but it was not more than expected and was very good. I was not impressed with the wine list but I liked the cocktails so much I stuck with those for dinner.

    The noise level is insane. It's impossible to have a conversation with someone sitting 2 feet away from you. The flatbread was not bad, but my gnocchi was horrible. It had no taste whatsoever, honestly nothing we ate was seasoned well. The service was good and our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu, but with all the info they post online about their apertivo hour (basically happy hour with $5 wine, several cocktails and appetizers including cheese and meat boards) it would have been nice to know ahead of time that those deals are only honored at the bar. Overall it was a disappointment - and with the newly opened Florence not too far away I doubt I'll be back. The Florence wins hands down in food,wine, and ambiance.

    We like to check out the new restaurants in Savannah. I'm very much into the fine dining scene, both as a server and customer. We've lived here 20 years and have seen many come and go. Pacci's is nice. We came once and sat at the bar and had excellent cocktails. So we came back for a full meal with family. The food is fine, but not worthy of a "rave" review.

    It's unusual that I come across an excellent restaurant in a hotel. We found one in Savannah at The Brice Hotel. Pacci is a great Northern Italy style restaurant we had a great Mediterranean Sea Bass over an angel hair pasta with Avery light but flavorful white wine sauce. The beet salad and green tomatoes caprese were great. The garden flatbread was awesome. We closed out our meal with the smoothest homemade lemon sorbet we ever had. The food and service were great!

But after meeting with Ruth, Chef Leocci allowed our meals to be considered as part of the tasting menu, one of our meals was not listed on the menu an still was allowed as part of the tasting. A very pleaseant surprise, I will definetly recommend Pacci to all my friends. Food was excellent.
